This is Our Time DVD Review and Giveaway

Our family had the opportunity to preview a brand new Christian film last night. This is Our Time is the story of five friends newly graduated from college and their desire to go out and do something big for God.

About This Is Our Time
The movie tells the interwoven stories of Luke (T.J. Dalrymple) and AlĂ© (Erin Bethea), who marry right after school and move to India to serve as missionaries for Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with leprosy and their families; aspiring financier Catherine (Kate Cobb), who joins a prestigious financial institution determined to make an impact on corporate America; Ryder (Matthew Florida), who lands an impressive job in social media and can’t wait to use the powerful medium for a greater good; and Ethan (Shawn-Caulin Young,) seemingly the odd man out, who struggles to find his God-given-purpose and feels sidelined by God.
“What they all come to learn is that it never really was their time,” Arnold said. “It always was, always is, God’s time.”

This is definitely an emotional movie, and it has a good message. Sometimes it's so easy to look around and see others doing big "important" things for the Lord, and to feel like because you aren't doing those BIG things, that you aren't worth as much. But the message in this movie is clear - we shouldn't be focusing so much on what God wants us to DO but rather on what He wants us to BE.

Throughout our lives we will all face good times and bad. There will be sorrows, disappointments, and yes, times of waiting. We may not always understand, but God has a special plan for each one of His children, and He sees how all of these pieces fit together. If we will faithfully serve Him right where He has placed us, we bring Him honor even if it's just washing dishes or making sandwiches. :)

I think I would enjoy it and I'd be watching it with my step-son who it never hurts to get more positive messages into, he's really struggling with being true to himself and not just blindly following his peer group

I like movies that the whole family canenjoy and that there is not alot of violence and cursing in it. It seems that many movies and also now television shows have alot of language that I find offensive to me and my family. I believe this would be a good family movie to enjoy with a big bowl of popcorn and some kleenedes. Thank you

I think that my sister would benefit from watching that. She was so upset when she could not find a job using her bachelors. She decided to go to nursing school eventually. I know that was God's plan all along. I hope she does too. kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.
